Brunello di Montalcino is the most prestigious Italian wine, well-known all over the world. Exclusively made with Sangiovese grapes it is intense and full-bodied. These are picked in the Montalcino area from the end of September to mid October. The juice is fermented along with the grape skins from two to three weeks in stainless steel tanks and then aged for 4 years, of which 2 and a half are in oak barrels. Bottega's Brunello is robust, savoury and velvety with a nose of red fruit, vanilla and spices.
